Erstwhile President of the United States of America, Donald Trump has showed support for the Nigerian government for suspending micro-blogging website, Twitter, in the country.
He said in a statement;
“Congratulations to the country of Nigeria, who just banned Twitter because they banned their President. More COUNTRIES should ban Twitter and Facebook for not allowing free and open speech – all voices should be heard.”
Trump also encouraged other countries to follow in Nigeria’s footsteps and ban Twitter and Facebook before stating that he should have banned Twitter and Facebook when he was in the White House, but claimed he was discouraged by Mark Zuckerberg.
“In the meantime, competitors will emerge and take hold. Who are they to dictate good and evil if they themselves are evil? Perhaps I should have done it while I was President,” Trump added. “But Zuckerberg kept calling me and coming to the White House for dinner telling me how great I was. 2024?”
